We’re not there. Yet. Out health care system hasn’t transitioned from a free market based delivery system to one of a more socialist system, but we took one step closer. Think of it as economic fascism, or medical fascism. It’s like what they always say: “It’s not the end of the world, but you can see it from here”.
My father died of cancer one year ago this weekend. He was diagnosed with a brain tumor on February 24, 2007. He beat his cancer the very next day, February 25, 2007.
Look. Unions are wicked wicked things. And they are not stupid. They will attach themselves to any host they can find and suck as much of it’s life out as it can. But they won’t kill the host.
It took 10 months to hit 1000.
It took 90 more days to hit the next grand.

I’m still pickled tink that anyone except mom reads this.
One of my favorite blogs and maybe the reason why I keep at this like I do is Coyote. It’s an excellent read full of real world business experience [he owns his own company], intelligence [double Ivy] and humor [just flat out funny].

But today, he knocked it out of the park.
Just like a kid running for class President, Obama runs on populist messages. He promises that we’ll all have ice cream before bed, get free tickets to the circus and catch a fish every cast.
And he usually gets a bump when he does. But the speed of reality catching up is getting faster and faster.
She speaks with a funny little accent. She uses turns of phrases that are unfamiliar to many of us. And what she looses in technical knowledge she makes up for in “gut feel”.
And she drives the Left crazy.
It’s long past time for the Government to enter the modern era. In a time when being LBGT is becoming less and less a consideration when hiring or promoting someone, the military continues to exclude members of its workforce for that very reason.
I wanna go on the record here. Even with this health care law that is now in effect, there will be medical services available and even innovation. It’s not as if we have just descended into the dark ages where leeches* were common practice and a shot of whiskey complemented by an ash twig was considered anesthetic. We’ll still advance. Just not as fast as we might otherwise have. Consider the fact that British doctors were able to transplant a trachea that would regenerate!
You know that old joke? Remember? Well, the answer is ‘ere as the joint is passed around the circle.
